    I had the veal medallion nighty special. It was so worth it. My husband had the seafood / linguini special.

    The quail dish had a superbe sauce! Unfortunately the wiped potatoes which came with it had horseradish mixed which was absolutely not appropriated for such a refined dish. I would have rated the food 5 stars without this ‘faux pas’.

    The establishment is beautiful the owners and most of the weight staff was very very nice, our $16 a bowl soup prior to dinner was definitely delicious but as lentil soup goes not worth $16 a bowl as a course before dinner. I did appreciate the options by our waiter for Stillwater or sparkling, I just didn’t know the Stillwater came at a price tag of seven dollars a bottle I would’ve been very happy the water the other waitstaff were pouring in everyone’s glasses from the tap which we were not offered. I also did not appreciate being served a gluten filled meal after extensively going over with our server that I had a celiac condition and what were the options to avoid that which were limited I will say if you wanted to enjoy pasta nonetheless, I was served a plate of gluten pasta and luckily did not take a bite of it and questioned it. I understand the art of the upsell, but it was so blatantly tacky done by our server I would never ask for him again. The food was good. I’ll be at slightly overpriced, but it was downtown Richmond.

    4 of us went to La Grotta before the Tommy Emmanuel concert. The food and service were both excellent and we did not have any issue making it to the concert in plenty of time.

    Our waiter was terrific and very helpful. He even asked us when we needed to be finished for the concert we were going. The food suggested was great and the wine wonderful, also suggested. The meals came out on time and hot, very hot. The restaurant was quiet and our meal not rushed. And, then we were out in time to get to our concert and even the to go meal came out on time. Great place, great food, and an excellent waiter.

    It was ok. It was my husbands birthday so we came to celebrate because he is a foodie. It’s a little over priced for the food. Glad to try it, but we won’t be back.

    Just a really bad experience. I’m alittle surprised the raviolis were really good. But other than that I have nothing nice to say
